I don't have a problem with Lourdes dressing up this way at all.It suits her very much and its really cute.

She is very unfortunate looking. Her style is hideous, not to mention the unibrow.

i think that the key here is to be tasteful about it. when you see kids that are dressing SOO much older and they are doing it in a provacative manner then it's wrong but i think that if it's done well..then it's fine. lordes isn't doing it badly so i'm not quite sure why people are making such a big deal about it.

She looks funky and cute. This is not at all a sexy look. I do not think teens should dress sexy. Girls need to learn to rely on far more than their looks or sexuality.
ps - love her brows. she's twelve. come on. when she's fourteen maybe she'll clean them up more, but she's so beautiful and it's one of her striking features.
lourdes dresses like a 12 year old hipster! she never looks inappropriate!

She's fine, though i'm not a fan of leggings. she's not dressing too old, but...brows anyone? or is it just me that thinks getting them done should be of some importance to her? Good brows really, really help show off someone's features and messy ones just distract from them.

People should dress their age but I don't think she looks bad or too "grown up"--she's wearing tennis shoes and gladiator flats, not heels. She looks fine. I do hate those overtly sexual halloween costumes though and when young girls wear too much makeup. That's gross.

I think Lourdes dresses well for her age, she has a funky style that's all her own, like her mama, but she doesn't dress like a mini skank! I don't see anything wrong with "dressing older for you age" as long as it's done tastefully. I remember being a 1980s kindergartner with teased, feathered hair and high top sneakers just like my mom!

leggings are perfect for the teen/tween set. if lourdes was wearing these looks with a platform YSL shoe or something like that, then this might be out of control. but converses and flat sandals keep things where they need to be. there ARE girls who dress too old for their age. (i'm gonna go google images of ali lohan now...poor girl) lourdes is not one of them.

i think she looks fashionable and not like a skank! when little girls are wearing revealing tops and too tight short shorts, it's a problem.. but she just looks funky chic :)

i think she looks good there. if she was dressing trampy like ali lohan then i would be unimpressed.

She has great style! I don't think she is dressing too "old" at all! She is totally age-appropriate and covered up. She has her own sense of style; I wish i was that fashion savvy when I was her age. I was probably running around in leggings too only I had a Champs sweatshirt and LA gear with like 4 colored laces on with them! Haha...

Leggings arent too old. Theyre funky and goofy and she's wearing them with tennis shoes so that's age apro. I was thinking you'd have a picture of Ali Lohan here. Wasnt expecting Lourdes! :P

I don't have a problem with kids dressing a little older but leggings are not appropriate for a 12 year old without a skirt or something over them. Leggings are skin tight and there are perverts out there who would find this exciting. A high school student wearing this is one thing but it's wrong for a girl her age.

Lourdes dresses just fine, IMO leggings are really pre-teen and teenaged dressing. Ali is a whole different story.

The only problem I have is when they have boobs and bootie out at 14. Thats just a complete lack of parental control/ self worth. I don't think Lourdes dresses above her age, she just dresses funky. Lohan dresses like a skank. Dina should be smacked.

i have to agree that lourdes is a bad example. she might dress more stylish than most kids her age, but its done age appropriately. ali lohan definitely dresses too old for her age. so does taylor momsen, though taylor momsen doesn't look quite as slutty as ali usually does.

Lourdes looks her age to me...I feel like leggings look better on younger girls, anyway.

I think Lourde's dresses fine. It's Ali Lohan I have a problem with. She looks older than me.

I agree Lola, I think she looks great, you can already tell she's going to be a really stylish adult. But as it is now, for a twelve year old, I think leggings and cute tops and cute trainers are completely appropriate. If it was short skirts and belly tops that would be different, but this is cute and casual and fine by me!

Since when does Lourdes dress too old for her age? It's really age appropriate for her. She looks great. She has her own quirky style. At least she's not walking around in slutty miniskirts.

Leggings are not "dressing old" quite the opposite.
